new stuff from NYC
I made a few purchases in NYC, but nothing all that exciting! Just some of those items that aren't exciting to purchase but are highly useful.
I finally broke down and got a linen Isabel Marant tee. I've wanted one for a long time, but couldn't justify the price. I searched and searched for something similar, but couldn't find anything that fit the bill. So I gave in a bought one at the store in Soho.
At Uniqlo I finally bought some round-neck cashmere sweaters, in black and light grey. I know I will get a lot of use out of them. I also got an oversize blue button-up shirt that I was on the fence about but have already worn a lot since.
Shown at the very bottom of the pile- I braved Topshop on a Saturday to get a pair of Baxter grey jeans, and I love them!
At Otte in Greenwich Village (I love Greenwich Village! I would want to live there if I ever live in NYC) I got these teeny tiny skull earrings in rose gold. They also come in silver or gold.
At Diptyque I made J buy me a candle because he (albeit accidentally) smashed one of mine. I went with Feu de Bois, which I have always wanted and is the perfect smokey woody smell for fall and Halloween.
Also, I painted the tables like Anna's Faux-Aalto table makeover. I like the update!
